This is a form of state terrorism. The fact is that a school for young children was demolished for no good reason at all. That is an act without justification. Many Israelis don’t support such practices, which are illegal under international law. It’s these types of actions that continue to diminish Israel’s global reputation, engendering hate and conflict, and ultimately leads to greater international isolation. It’s truly a shame, because when I was growing up, we saw Israel as a model state, one to be emulated, not scorned.
